2021 Newton Johnson Albarino (Hemel-en-Aarde)

Zesty, fragrant aromas, bright and generous, lime and melon, quite gorgeous! The palate carries the same zesty fruit, with a zippy saline character, delicate yet with weight derived from time on the lees. A touch floral on the finish, which lingers refreshingly. Really superb in this cool vintage. (JH 22/09/22)

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2021 Albariño Newton Johnson is aged 30% in concrete egg with a tiny amount in foudres. It has an attractive, perfumed nose with yellow fruit and white linen scents. The palate is well balanced with a tangy marmalade-tinged entry and fine acidity with a saline finish. This is worth seeking out. 89 points
